Unwanted items

Should you change your mind after you've made your purchase, don't worry, we are still here to help.

“Online shoppers receive misleading information about their rights to return items, leading to widespread confusion, a consumer group has said. Which? studied the websites of 46 retailers and supermarkets. It found that all but one had errors. The only retailer to pass the test was hi-fi seller Richer Sounds.” – BBC News, 16.03.2018.

 

In-store purchases

We will happily refund or exchange your purchase price in full if for any reason you return your item/s to us in a ‘sealed’ (unopened/unused) condition within 28 days of purchase.

As you can appreciate, we would request that all goods be returned in an ‘as new’ condition complete with packaging and all accessories (please note, for hygiene reasons we are unable to give refunds on headphones). Unfortunately, goods which do not comply with this condition may be subject to a handling fee.

If the unit/s you’re returning have been opened or used, we are unable to resell them as new. Therefore, a 10% handling fee may be deducted if they are returned within 28 days of purchase in mint condition with all packaging/accessories (excludes headphones). This does not affect your statutory rights.

 

Items bought over the phone or online

We will happily accept the return of your online purchase, in 'as new' condition (ie complete with the original box, packaging, and all included accessories) under the following circumstances:

If you wish to return goods (other than faulty goods) you should notify Richer Sounds of your intention to do so within 14 days of the date of receipt by you. You then have an additional 14 days to return the goods from this notification date (goods should be returned within 28 days).

i. Your statutory rights
Under the Consumer Contracts Regulations, you may return goods and obtain a full refund of the cost of the good/s you have ordered, provided you notify Richer Sounds of your intention to do so within 14 days of the date of receipt by you (in the case of a multiple order, within 14 days of receiving the last item). You will then have a further 14 days to return the goods from this notification date. We will aim to send you a full refund within 14 days of receiving the goods from you. Richer Sounds will pay the cost of any basic return delivery or postage costs for goods you want to return. Please note if you have selected one of our premium delivery options, these additional costs will not be refunded.

ii. Our Returns procedure
Please ensure that you take reasonable care of any goods we deliver to you. As you can appreciate, we would request that all goods be returned in a reasonable re-saleable condition (please note, for hygiene reasons we are unable to give refunds on headphones if used). You will not receive a refund for personalised or made to order products. Richer Sounds reserves the right to deduct an amount from the refund to reflect any loss in value of the goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling of the goods by you. All goods to be returned to us must be accompanied by a receipt or proof of purchase or if you do not have this, you must provide us with your order number or any relevant information you have to help us track your order details.
